A Letter from Mark Todd, BARA President
Dear Potential Rodeo Sponsor:
Baker Area Recreation Association, Inc. (BARA) is pleased to announce the 28th annual Pro Rodeo, April 7th & 8th, 2017. BARA began in 1987, for the purpose of building a community facility that could support the needs of north Okaloosa County. Today BARA continues to oversee the facility that has grown to include a covered arena that supports events each month of the year.
BARA's first Pro Rodeo was in 1990 and has grown over the past 26 years to be the largest PCA Pro Rodeo in Northwest Florida. Baker's Pro Rodeo is one of the largest community events held in Northwest Florida.
Becoming a sponsor of the Baker Pro Rodeo is a great opportunity for your company to be part of a local tradition and include your company's name in a highly marketed and popular rodeo.
BARA extensively markets the rodeo and events through radio, print media, various websites, and rodeo programs. Each year, thousands of people from Florida, Alabama, Louisiana and Georgia attend and/or participate in the rodeo. Our marketing of the rodeo is a great way for you to get your company's name out, not only in the local media, but to customers in outlying markets.
By sponsoring the Baker Pro Rodeo, you will be helping support and promote our western heritage. The rodeo allows BARA to maintain and upgrade the overall facility along with giving money back to charitable organizations. BARA also supports 4H and provides a facility for the youth of our community. Your company will gain great exposure by helping support all of these local programs.
BARA would like to offer you the opportunity to become a part of a long standing tradition in our community. There are three levels of sponsorship packages available as well as the opportunity for a custom package to fit your business needs. Please contact Mark Todd (850-582-1054), Bill Barnhill (850-803-2367) or one of our board members for more information.
